Best post in this thread!For the past few years I have managed to remove Microsoft from all our Macs (7 in the household). This effort has been somewhat undermined by relatives giving [old, mostly worthless, underpowered] bring-me-down PCs to the grandkids ... I do all the IT in the household, and refuse to support the PCs -- It's up to the relatives to provide that.I signed up for a free trial of Office 365 so I can evaluate the new iPad apps. So far they look...
First impression: Word is a pretty good app -- it's responsive, has most needed features and seems to be well implemented. It will be interesting to do a feature by feature comparison with Pages. I suspect that many in enterprise will require Word -- for those who don't and for home use it's hard to the price of Pages! In either case, Apple and the iPad win!
Mmm... Apple removed categories from OSX Numbers to make it feature equivalent on iOS and iCloud -- I wonder why MS did this.Could you find any help or feature list?BTW, you can get a free 1 month trial of Office 365 at the MS web site.BTW2, this is the best implementation of the ribbon menu that I've seen in any MS product.
Does Excel support pivot tables?
I'm the furthest thing from a Ballmer fan ... But, you have to give credit where credit is due -- these apps started on the Ballmer's watch!I don't know though, whether Ballmer would have released it on the iPad before releasing it on the Surface.I suspect that iOS has better APIs and a richer SDK than the Surface does.
The app I'd like to see on the iPad and AppleTV is Popcorn-Time: https://github.com/popcorn-team/popcorn-app/releases/tag/v0.2.7-beta
Don't forget the mind-numbing, wandering-rant, jaw-dropping anti-Microsoft editorial!
Here's one reference to sapphire being used in camera lenses and focusing:http://www.melleroptics.com/shopping/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=19

As a result of the discussion on another thread:I'll see if I can find the references to optics of the sapphire.TC's cornering the market on sapphire manufacturing could yield a double-whammy -- silicon on sapphire (SoS) ICs for the iWatch and fantastic iPhone camera improvements:
